Atarah Ben-Tovim, MBE, has inspired three million children at her live concerts. Don’t miss this chance to enjoy her special magic. With everyone being given a paper bag, to bang with the cannons in Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, what else could you call this concert but BARBICAN BIG BANG?

Children may bring ANY instrument to join in with the National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by John Owen Edwards. Play percussion? Clash your cymbals in the overture to Bizet’s Carmen. Recorders and woodwind join in Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio Espagnole. Strings take a bow in Offenbach’s Can Can. Brass can blow their hearts out in Sousa’s Stars and Stripes.

And everyone can join in Ode to Joy and enjoy the actors and dancers in Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries and Prokofiev’s Montagues and Capulets. Break dancing, John Williams’ Star Wars, Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, the Guildhall Junior Brass Ensemble showing There’s no business like show business and Richmond Youth Jazz Band in the foyer before and after the show. What a way to end the holiday!
